The EU-funded H2020 PROACTIVE project, coordinated by the UIC Security Division, held its 17th consortium meeting on 26-27 July 2023 in Prague, Czech Republic. This was the final working meeting of the project and focused on the preparation of the remaining deliverables due before the end of August 2023.
The first day was dedicated to the PROACTIVE Crisis Communication System, which is made up of a collaborative web platform and mobile app (available on android and iOS). Three deliverables in total will be released which detail the project’s iterative co-creation process and technical development. The meeting also offered an excellent opportunity for the project partners to discuss the project’s final exploitation plan, which will focus on the Crisis Communication System.
On the second day, the partners concentrated on the undertaken joint field exercises. First up was the recently held third PROACTIVE field exercise, organised by Campus Vesta in conjunction with the eNOTICE project. After viewing the recently released field exercise video, partners offered their insights into the exercise and evaluation workshop deliverable (now published). This was followed by discussions on the key findings of and recommendations arising from all three of the field exercises, which will be detailed in the upcoming summary report.
Lastly, the partners discussed ongoing work on the ethical and societal assessments of PROACTIVE’s outputs. The feedback provided will be incorporated into the final version of the assessment.
In conclusion, the meeting offered a chance for all partners to engage with PROACTIVE’s important deliverables and complete the final tasks ahead of the project’s conclusion. Many thanks to the Population Protection Institute (PPI – Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic) for hosting the meeting in Prague.
